Can't filter by category on summary block

I'm trying to make different pages on a client site, each with a summary block that filters to only show one category from the shop. For some reason the options on the summary block has the Category filter greyed out so I can't configure it (see right side on image attached).

As you can see on the left, there are definitely products assigned to categories so I'm not sure why it's not letting me filter in the summary. Haven't had this happen before — is there some kind of setting I need to turn on/off for these products?

You created Category but you haven't assigned Category for any products, so that option won't use

Assign it then check Summary Block again


Hi @tuanphan there are definitely categories assigned if this is what you mean! First pic in my original post also shows that there are multiple products under the men/women/accessories categories. Let me know if there anything else I should be doing. Thanks!

Update — I was able to resolve the problem.

Not sure why... this might be a bug, but when the section is a fluid section, the summary block does not let me select a category filter. But I created a new section using the classic editor, and the summary filtering worked just fine there.
